About this product
- DescriptionTo many outsiders, mathematicians appear to think like computers, grimly grinding away with a strict formal logic and moving methodically - even algorithmically - from one black-and-white deduction to another. This book reveals that mathematics is a profoundly creative activity and not just a body of formalized rules and results.
- Author BiographyWilliam Byers is professor of mathematics at Concordia University in Montreal. He has published widely in mathematics journals.
